Default New Weston Plane?

Has anyone seen anything about the New Weston plane?

It's a delta wing jet style plane? Anything good, bad etc?

It's only about £70, without an engine, I'm thinking of getting one to try them out.

I recently saw one of these kits in the LHS.....labeled the 'Tigershark". I looked at it for a while, but decided against their $90 price tag, for what this is.

I also thought these were pre-Magnum? Maybe I'm wrong....

Bet they'd haul the mail with any type of performance 40-46 strapped on.

DOH! stupid me..

slower than a Magnum, glides aboutt he same because it's flatplate wing

the Tigershark is an old design, it's been brought back and made ARTF, nice flyer, it's more of a fast sports delta, not a speed ship.

PhillyBaby,

Do you know the difference between the "old" TigerShark, and this new Magnum Delta?

it's not even a Magnum Fuz, never has been.

the old Tigershark was a kit, this is an ARTF, you stick the fin in, thats it!

personally i like the old ones done up with F1 logos but as it's ARTF we won't be seeing that anymore.
reason is marketing, think about, it, you see a Cougar or Hype you know what it is, and it looks good.
see the same plane with Joe blogs normal covering on it, first you don't know what it is, and it probably don't look much either.

sad but true[&o]
